It’s getting a wee bit disconcerting walking round L’dod lake these days;today we saw one rat trotting round the sluice before disappearing into the reeds at the side ! 3 Grebes still-one parent seems to have gone. I
n the garden 9 Goldfinches suddenly appeared to join the rabble. Also a Marsh tit and Nuthatches. House Martins still around.When you look at the East coast and see the swarms of rare migrants , you feel a bit deprived!
